We all know that beginnings are difficult, but remember that everything becomes easier when we work together.

Without any more words here are the tools:

Burp or Burp Suite is a set of tools used for penetration testing of web applications. It is developed by the company named Portswigger, which is also the alias of its founder Dafydd Stuttard. BurpSuite aims to be an all-in-one set of tools and its capabilities can be enhanced by installing add-ons that are called BApps.
It is the most popular tool among professional web app security researchers and bug bounty hunters. 


ActiveScan++: ActiveScan++ extends Burp Suite’s active and passive scanning capabilities. Designed to add minimal network overhead, it identifies application behavior that may be of interest to advanced testers.

BurpSentinel: With BurpSentinel it is possible for the penetration tester to quickly and easily send a lot of malicious requests to parameters of an HTTP request. Not only that, but it also shows a lot of information of the HTTP responses, corresponding to the attack requests. It’s easy to find the low-hanging fruit and hidden vulnerabilities like this, and it also allows the tester to focus on the more important stuff!

Nmap is a network mapper that has emerged as one of the most popular, free network discovery tools on the market. Nmap is now one of the core tools used by network administrators to map their networks. The program can be used to find live hosts on a network, perform port scanning, ping sweeps, OS detection, and version detection.

A number of recent cyberattacks have re-focused attention on the type of network auditing that Nmap provides. Analysts have pointed out that the recent Capital One hack, for instance, could have been detected sooner if system administrators had been monitoring connected devices. In this guide, we’ll look at what Nmap is, what it can do, and explain how to use the most common commands.

At its core, Nmap is a network scanning tool that uses IP packets to identify all the devices connected to a network and to provide information on the services and operating systems they are running.

How to install NMAP using command line terminal:

Step 1: Update Ubuntu Package List
Make sure the software packages on your Ubuntu system are up-to-date with the command:

sudo apt-get update

The system updates your package lists and confirms that the action is complete.

Step 2: Install Nmap
To install NMAP on Ubuntu, run the command:

sudo apt-get install nmap

The system prompts you to confirm and continue by typing and pressing Enter.

After confirming, the installation runs its course.

Step 3: Verify Nmap Version Installed
To verify the installation was successful and to determine the current version of Nmap:

nmap --version

The output provides detailed information about Nmap.
